Your tutorial is great so far,  being a newbie I can allready see how much
help it's going to be.

On your page about the VSYNC's and VBLANKS, it would be cool to see a simple
little chart like when it's safe to do code and when it's not etc.   I'm
sure your code in the "My First Program" section will go over all that

Thanks again,
I'm looking forward to the rest of your tutorial.
